As much as I love Nepal, I hate the hierarchy we have for EVERYTHING.
I love our culture, and I adore how much of our traditions is set in respect (especially for those older than us) but I hate, hate, HATE how people think they deserve respect just because of age or position. While these methods are wonderful when it comes to family and on the streets, it only serves as additional conflicts in the work place due to expectations and egos.
A lot of people in Nepal don’t know how to be professional.
You can’t demand respect, it’s something you earn.
Again, it comes down to balance.
